StringNeedle / Needlework


The design of the needle has nothing to do with needle, but to accomplish the mission that needle does.
The product consists of a tiny machine, it has a structure which fixes strings and a container that serves setting glue.
Any type of string could be stuffed in on the side. After pressing the button, the structure will make the string straight and oozes little setting glue.
the head of the string will get hard as a needle a few seconds. The chamfer of the structure guarantees that head of the string sharp. you can use string itself as needle to do sewing work.
Cut the hard part of string off after sewing, it'll get degraded few hours later
